What Parents are Saying

“The school encourages each child to be creative, by both in class participation and homework assignments. Furthermore, the teachers are always supportive of each child to learn at their own pace, by providing a framework, and some demonstration, but most importantly, lots of encouragement. Excellent school and excellent staff!”

“Great school! By far the best drawing school we’ve ever tried. Among all after school programs, this drawing class is my daughter’s favorite. She is enjoying teacher’s passions & inspiration very much. Because of the small size of each class, kids received more personalized instruction. My little one is 4yr old now, can’t wait to send her to CalColor too!. “

My boy goes this school for 3 years already. He loves it and learns a lot from every single class. The class has great mix of different art areas, from oil painting, water coloring to clay and drawings. It is very important to me to let kids to explore and experience diverse art styles. The staff here guide and evoke students creativity step by step. It is a fun, knowledgeable and friendly place. It is a wonderful place to explore beauty of art using your eyes and fingers.”
